We’re thinking ahead and ensuring that you’re educated about how your smart lock system works and its capabilities. At Smarter Homes, when we’re designing a smart home system we’re thinking of how everything connects to the brain of the smart home. This includes the smart locking devices throughout the home. Our smarter integrators tap into the very latest smart technologies staying in line with the style and functions of the locking devices that you’ve chosen. Some brands of smart locks aren’t always compatible in that they have closed API’s (Application Programming Interface), which is self contained and not able to communicate with other devices or the smart home hub. However, a solution can always be found by exploring different smart lock brands to find similar styles that have open API’s and can talk to any system.
